Replicant was founded on the belief that machines are ready to have useful, complex conversations that will transform the way they interact with the world, starting with customer service.

Replicant is building the world's first autonomous contact center that works out-of-the-box to solve customer problems over the phone using voice AI. You can think of Replicant Voice as a self-service, Thinking Machine™. Just like agents, Replicant is able to speak with customers in a natural tone, answer questions without delay, and deflect calls to resolve customer issues quickly. Now, enterprise customers can eliminate hold times, manage unpredictable call volumes, and give agents time back to resolve high empathy cases with a new, human + AI operating model.

If you're excited by AI and human-to-machine communications and want to make an impact with great technologists and strong go-to-market leaders, then look no further. We've grown our team by 3x, increased revenue by 4x, and were named a top enterprise AI company by The Information. We currently serve Fortune 500 customers, run millions of AI calls per month in production, and are increasing our footprint globally.

Replicant is an ecosystem for crafting conversations, with in-house Deep Learning models and algorithms that allow our Thinking Machines™ to listen, think, and interact with the world. Our Machine Learning models are in the critical path of our product and at the cutting edge of industry and academia. We are working on novel problems and bringing our solutions from research to production, focusing our attention not only on accuracy metrics, but also on explainability, latency and resource consumption.

That’s where you come in! We’re looking for a Senior Machine Learning Engineer with experience researching and developing Machine Learning models in any of the disciplines required to create amazing Conversational AIs: NLU, NLP, ASR, Dialog Management and TTS.

  • Optimize our models to run in a real-time, low latency, highly available system
  • Create tools to give insight in our models’ decisions and performance

What You'll Bring

  • 5+ years of proven professional experience as a Machine Learning Engineer
  • Excellent communication skills and a vivid imagination
  • A keen eye for data flow and building understandable, testable systems
  • Independent thinking and passion to solve complex problems
  • Interest in exploring the nuance and aesthetic of conversations

Our Values

Replicant has three core values. It is critical that everyone who joins the team feels excited and moved by these values as every new team member makes an impact on our culture.

Blade Runners: We take ownership and pride to influence the outcomes of our goals. We are successful, and like a Blade Runner, use the tools at our disposal to reach our objectives. We value open and honest communication and proactively seek feedback along the way. We are a company driven to grow and achieve both individually and as a team.

Bread Makers: We are humble and strive toward an egalitarian culture. No task is too big or too small. We work together to achieve our goals and develop our company mission. We believe that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts in everything that we do.

Självdistans (Self-Distance): Självdistans is Swedish for self-distance. It's the ability to critically reflect on oneself and one's relations from an external perspective. With this in mind, we act with objectivity and always remember that we are not our work. There's no perfect science to growing a team or business, but we trust everyone at Replicant to point out our blind spots and humbly admit their own.
